#4: Reduced Shipping Costs
Shorter distance to travel means lowered shipping costs; it’s that simple. Shipping equipment by sea or air is far more expensive than shipping on the ground, not to mention the thousands of extra miles and times it takes to travel the additional distance. It may seem palatable to take on this extra cost for a one-time expense, but with aerial lift equipment, this may not always be the case. Over a machine’s lifetime, you’ll more than likely need to order replacement parts to keep the lift in good working shape. When ordering from overseas manufacturers, you’ll pay extra every time you order parts, taking another chunk out of your ROI.
